Goodbye FTOs

From the comments section. We're still looking for confirmation:
  • Found out today that there will only be six, yes, six, training districts: 004, 006, 008, 010, 024 and 025.

    The order comes out on Tuesday. First round of FTO bids to these districts are on the 12th and the second round on the 19th.

    After the shit they pulled with those guys in 014, with some of them being sent to 009, I believe, now they are doubly fucked. They even have to leave 009. (That is if they went to begin with.)

    How the hell is this a morale booster? I do not know of one person who took the last FTO test without the reasonable expectation of returning to their district. Everyone, I mean EVERYONE, I talked to who took the test wants the D2A pay AND to be working in their district!

    Yes, this is the way to show that FTO's are the backbone of the department's future!
Once again, the Department (or J-Fed) fail to realize that District of Assignment is the most important deciding factor. Back when they did "Furlough by Watch" they expected all the old timers to bid to faster districts on 3rd Watch and Midnights so they could get their 6A/B and 7A/B furloughs. The end result then was almost no one moved - the old timers took their 5A/B and 8A/Bs if they had to...as long as they stayed in their districts.

Expect the same thing with FTOs - we predict 60% of the people earning D2 will resign rather than move.

SCC your right! I was an FTO in 012, Monroe, a few years back. When the city said 012 was no longer a training district I resigned.

WHAT?? No big bad 11th district??? How is Jody going to break it to the "fillmore rangers" that their district, made up largely of vacant lots and piss bumbs, just isnt what it once was!? I mean, all those bad ass coppers not getting the title of wild wild west??? WHAT IS THIS CITY COMING TO??? I mean, all those REAL POLICE!!! HAHAHAHAHA that is HILARIOUS 011 wasnt recognized as busy enough to be even a training district!!! Guess the west side really IS NOT the wild wild west well, at least not that part of the west side just a shadow of what it used to be sorry fillmore, but any district that is made up by a significant percentage of yuppies (lower east side) DOES NOT make you a fast district and this proves iT!!!

Im sure they want many of the FTO's to quit. Thats less D2A"s

Plus why have FTO's when theres no recruits and relatively small number to no hires in the future?

there are no recruits and none are being hired so it makes sense (from their perspective) for the department to get rid of the FTOs and save money. It's called budget cutting. It's going to take 2-3 years until recruits outnumber FTOs and then there will be a new test and more districts will be taking recruits. It's all a numbers game for the time being. The main thing about this is that between the lines one can read is that they expect the number of new hires coming into the department to be minimal. That is the scary part of this.

If this is true I would guess that they are counting on FTO’s resigning. Too many FTO's are without ppo's because they are not hiring enough to even cover the retiring po's. This means a bunch of FTO's making money for a job they are not doing. So the city sees an opportunity to save some money. The easiest way is to get the FTO's to voluntarily give up the position by changing the rules. With the city crying broke and no ppo's, a re-tooling of the FTO system shouldn’t have been completely unexpected. But if they do this, it also means that there are no plans in the future to do any significant hiring to help us with manpower.

You got that right. Why the 010th District? What about the 007th District? Seems to me they want to move people just to reduce current shooting trends which can change overnight.

Instead of fucking with FTO's who are just PO's taking on more work and headaches trying to do the right thing. Eliminate the fucking DOC and TRU and send them all back to Patrol where the greatest need is. J-Fed will wait to Fall before he makes any moves just to play it safe.

Is this headquarter's way of "de- policing"? Considering that there aren't new classes going in, who do they really have to train anymore. Another back door attempt at discarding union contract? No one to train so let's get rid of this position and pay increase or at least let the number of people doing it dwindle.

FYI. It is on the FOP website.

I for one am not surprised. I was one of the first new FTOs when they started the program back in I believe it was 99 or 2000. Anyway back then they blew a bunch of smoke up our A$$es about how we would rotate in the academy 1 month a year to help keep the Academy up to speed and we could interact with our future recruits. We were told we would be doing roll call presentations to help the district keep up to date. We were they were trying to get it so we could get a couple of extra points on the test. (I knew it was BS but some people fell for it)

Anyways after about a year of being given sub-standard recruits and being told to pass them at all costs. Fighting with the W/Cs over my extra half hour a day I was entitled to for filling out the paperwork and finally being Screwed over by a W/C who tried to dump me off the watch in favor of a lower seniority FTO who was, and still is a suck A$$ I gave it up.

I thought back then and still do now that the FTO job is important. The problem was no one else in the Dept seemed to think so and I had enough of the BS.

Good luck to you FTOs out there who stick it out. The D2 pay was not worth it to me.

for a program that needed to be fixed and was on life support it just died. Thanks to the powers that be for screwing the program even more. i agree we will lose a large number of ftos who would rather walk than transfer and you cant blame them.

2 years ago we went to the academy and were asked what could be done too fix the problem, this was nt one of the suggestions. I am disgusted and feel bad for my fellow ftos who are being backed into a corner.

what a hell of a mess this has become.if anyone reading this blog is part of this decision making process in regard to this please rethink it as it is a horribly bad idea.

I have had the priviledge of training alot of men and women over the years and with what is on the table with the program is going to kill it. we are short as it is and its only going to get worse.

we need a good fto program and we need good ftos. the ppos come out and those first few months are critical. please dont screw this up beyond repair. the program is on life support, if you do this you will most definitely kill ot.

PLEASE RETHINK IT. You will be hurting alot of people both FTOs and PPOs.

Dont do it !!

JFED does not support the FTO system. He and other exempts realize the program in its current design is a complete failure. No other city treats their FTO's so bad as Chicago. Recruits after graduation are thrown to the wolves. Then everyone wonders why recruits are afriad to work or make decisions. A recruit was fired for very bad guidance by the acting FTO and no one defended the recruit. Academy training alone is not enough. We must have effective FTO program. This is disgusting.

O.T. Hey I just got back into town and was reading post from the week. I noticed that a lot of people were upset that the garbage tax was being talked about. I agree that it is a stupid idea. but what you didn't realize as you were all beating up the POLs was that it was introduced by the leader of their union. The guy that might suffer the most if they were to go with a 2 man crew it ould cut his flock by 33%. He was just looking to secure the jobs for his dues paying members so that he could keep his do nothing job.

Maybe he has a GREAT IDEA. You pay for all the services that you get.
If you want your garbage picked up? you pay for it. If you want the police? pay each time we come to your house. Fire? pay as they get there. Ambo? pay before they take you to the hospital. If your kids go to a public scholl? pay for it.
And if there are any of these services that you do not need, we will NOT tax you for it.

Condo owners use to get a REBATE because they had their garbage picked up by a private company.

My kids go to a private school and I do not need to call for the police, so give me a REBATE

It's too bad that some of the FTO's really need the extra money (and I mean that sincerely), because it would be GREAT if they ALL would just up and quit the FTO program.

Or maybe this is part of the plan to save money. If we don't hire new PPO's, we don't need FTO's, so let em give it up.

It has struggled to come back but its still a dismal disjointed effort at Best. Now to pull this shit they must be fuckin nuts. Return to a failed policy again, what else is new.. There are plenty of learning oportunities in all districts. FTOs should be allowed to be in every District based upon District Size, need and learning oportunities. The FTO is perhaps one of the most mportant people you can learn from when you first hit the streets. That and a great involved field sgt. I swear to God J-Fraud and his minions just dont get it.

Now with the almost certainty of an Obama win, former Deputy Supt. Charles Williams will be in line for a huge spot. Williams is a cousin of Craig Robinson (Obama's brother in law) and has been offering advice on law enforcement issues to the Obama campaign as an unpaid advisor. You can bet old Charlie will get a big political appointee spot in Homeland Security. Charlie is a very loyal guy and he will bring a contingent of his loyalists from the CPD to Homeland Security to show the FEDS how the real police do things.

Why can't the FTO's and their recruits BE the one's that DEPLOY from the distric they are assigned to those districts they want them to work in?

Pick up the radios, squad cars, tasers etc. in their district of assignment. Put a FTO beat tag on the top of the car (that tells everyone they have a recruit).

Tell the zone they are available for jobs/assignments in the zone/district they are working.

Assign SGT.s from the academy to log them and meet them in the districts they work. Drop their paper off in the districts they served or to the Sgt. from the Academy so HE can analyze their work.

Return to the district they came from for check off!

Give them pool cars or specific cars assigned to the FTO program for each district they come from.

This is so true. The FTO section has lately been the bastard child. To many promises were broken in the past, that I'm not sure what it will take to make this a viable or sought after position again. They've had focus groups in the past, which for the most part were a waste of time for those that did attend. Those attending were told there would be change(s). This was another promise broken. We all are cognizant of the fact that there are some,some, FTO's or actors that shouldn't be near a recruit. But the majority of men and women who took this position have done it for a variety of reasons, and most have had venerable reasons.

The department should and/or must come to the realization that the FTO is one of the key elements in bringing the department back to respectability.

Unfortunately, I don't think they understand this and are apathetic.

Anytime you ride with anyone who has less experience than you, you are a de facto FTO, albeit without the pay bump.

And anytime you ride with anyone who has more experience than you have, you are a de facto PPO, albeit only as far as the specifics of what you don't know and they do know.

Everyone can learn something from anyone.

If anything, this is still another move that should unite all in patrol.

Bit of History-- they had FTO's in every district and every watch years ago. Then the powers that be decided they would only have 6 training districts (in 1985). 3 north 3 south-- 009/021/005 South and can't remember north ones. I know 019/025 was some. Then they poured the recruits in, they would have the FTO's work with a recruit for 2 weeks and then change them around. Horrible idea it was then and is now. It took about 10 years for them to realize it was a bad idea and look to fixing it. Time to move forward into the past. They will do it, and the job will go on. Good Luck

I am willing to bet these ant-size exempts will use whatever FTO's who keep there position for some sort of TRU type unit.

Improve morale, J-Fed and the bosses say? Right! This is the exact fucking way to do it! I would love to see every FTO quit by 12 SEP. Maybe that will help with morale of these pee-on bosses.

When i got on the job, there were no REAL FTO'S........they were cops with experience, some good some bad........... But they knew the job......... At times they couldn't get past their PPO's. Some of us were educated, some of us had a life before we became the police.

But they taught us the streets. NO matter if you are in 011, or 001.......... YOU ARE A CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER.............REMEMBER THAT!!!!!!!!!!

That bullshit of being a ranger is just that.............. I have worked through my career, ALL districts in this city. And you know what???????? I found no matter what district, we are all blue. So fuck the cute nicknames of fillmore rangers or whatever........ Because, every district has their share of SHIT.......... The officer's take care of the shit and go and do another job....... NO bragging, no nothing, it is part of the job..........

Be happy for what you have......... Back up your brother and sister warriors............ The FTO's are out their to TRY and guide you out of a lawsuit, firing, and get you now, PAST your 18 month's, which use to be a year....... Gawd help us.

The city doesn't want police, but, yet again they do, but put us on double secret probation with the 18 month rule instituted several years back....

All the guys with more time on than I do always have a great, "my FTO" story.

The sad fact of the matter is that my first FTO I worked with for one day and bounced.

The second and third ones couldn't have cared less about teaching. They were relatively young and one of them blatantly told me it was because of the pay grade that he did it.

I've never heard anything good about any FTO since I've been on the job.

There is only one in my district worth their salt. The rest are adequate at best.

The department can pay everyone off probation on a daily basis to "train" PPO's on their cycles and refresher but they don't have to give us a salary hike.

It's cheaper for them in the long run.

Days that I used to work with a PPO (there aren't any on their cycles, but some are on refreshers, thank you hiring freeze) I'd often hand in my out of grade and time due slip much later, simply because I forgot about it.

The city realizes that some of us have a life outside this job distract us from taking their money that they are handing to us, no matter how little, on a per diem basis.

So what happens is the 7 month wonders are trained by the 1 year six month and one day wonders who were trained by the same thing.

The system is broken the cycle keeps repeating itself.

It's sad and pathetic and I really wish that more emphasis was placed on the FTO program.

Hell at this point, 011 and 015 are on their way to becoming the next 024th district.

Not that it will ever happen, both districts will be near the tops in shootings and homicides, as they always do but who cares? nobody is impressed. I've worked west and south, guess what, they both suck, the south seems worse because it isn't policed like it is out west, it was obvious that the south siders aren't as hands-on so they run wild. Now, nobody is hands on and it shows! just answer your calls, back each other up and go home safe, fuck all the "i'm a ranger" shit, NOBODY CARES!

You say you have always thought that FTO s are a little strange huh. You are a moron. Some of us got into it because we had shitty FTOs when we were getting trained. I had one guy that was asleep 1 hour into our shift and the other one who did not want to do one bit of police work. then after I was trained I worked with someone who told me he was trained we were working and stopped a car that blew a red light. we pulled him over and out came the button with an apology and he told me he just got done working a 16 hr tour I smiled and walked to the car after saying good night to him. the goof i was working with was asking him for his dl and insurance. i couldnt believe my ears and told the moron to get into the car. at that point i knew that we had a serious problem with ppos being trained the right way and i decided to do it on a full time basis.

I agree we have a few bad ones out there but like everything else there are bad ets, bad detectives and so on.

but we need a program that is going to train these kids the right way from beginning to end so coppers dont come up and want to write bs tickets to coppers who havent slept in 24 hours.

anyone who says we dont deserve detective pay have not walked in the shoes of an fto. there are alot of detectives that dont deserve detective pay. ftos have to sit next to someone they do not know, have never worked with before and hope that when the shit hits the fan the ppo can handle themselves in a manner as to protect their own life as well as my own.

I got into the program for all the right reasons and to make a difference and to say all the ftos are incompitent is bs.

There are alot of good coppers on this department and the this latest slap to the faces of men and women who have devoted their time and efforts into training the new officers is outrageous.

dont criticize us until you have walked in our shoes. I had do nothing ftos and i took the position to make a difference and I hope over the years I have been able to do that in some way.

god bless all the men and women of this department and dont hate us until you know what we do.

no matter what happens we all work for the greatest police department in the world with some of the greatest coppers.

I am proud to be a member of this department and to work along side my brothers and sisters in blue.

I can tell you are a very bitter person, maybe mom and dad picked on you as a child, maybe you had a sister that made you wear her dresses and being a man that bothered you or maybe you took the FTO test and failed.

But if there is anything I can do to help you understand how we work and what we do please feel free to contact me. unlike you I sign my name to the posts and dont hide behind a mask of anonimity.

Be safe all and remember back one another up and take care of each other.

Hey leave that FTO at the desk alone in 014 Days..he has had a hard time adjusting his lips to the new ass to kiss. Capt. B has a much smaller ass than the last one. Woof.

Yeah the fto in 014 has plenty of stories and many skirts to wear behind the desk. If he didnt get so much time due by his buddies and time off to do sidejobs he could probably work the streets. Instead he sits there like a bitch. I thought the 2nd watch capt. was more on top of things. Off topic, those two asshats that got fired from the burglary team in 014 for not having any activity, S.F. and his little troll are now the new 1406. What a joke. They must have made a call crying to avila in 025 that they got dumped. The uniforms look good on you ladies...........

Thanks for your service. However you made my point, most FTO'S are strange birds. You dear son have issues. When you ask for help don't forget to give them your number. Good Luck

To the asshat downing the 014 dist officers, please leave your name. Obviously you are too chicken shit to reveal yourself and until you do your comments dont mean a damn thing. Yeah so 014 is getting a little slow work wise but that doesnt mean that the officers arent still out there doing there jobs and heloping each other out. I dont take ths shit on here personally and neither should anyone else. You hve made some enemies now and when you want to grow some balls and step up to us we will be waiting.

congrats to the 4 new 014th dist mission team officers (aka the the 2 year wonders who only lock up drinkers/cttp for the #s) only 1 out of the 4 newbies has the numbers to be on that team R G. as far as s.f and his partner working the 06 car all i can say is stop hating on them they have more time and arrests on the job then the whole team put together. maybe if you actually got out of your car on days and put cuffs on people maybe you'd have more then 20 arrests in a six month period you could have worked the 06 car. as for arrests even on their worse day they make more arrests then the newbies.

I'm surprised John didn't pick a Mexican as his running mate. The repubic-clowns could pay him or her minimum wage and make points with big business.

R.G. is a joke. If she did as much work as she did fuckin around back there she might be something. A head is a head, you know that S.F. The problem is your old team didnt bring in any heads. Thats why you were all dumped. You can make all the arrests you want now. Everyone knows you guys are strokes. S.F. tell us why you left narcotics if you were sooooo good there? Oh thats right you have all these ribbons on your chest and your still in the district writing parkers. Glad to see your phone call is really working. Oh I guess if you need to find the 06 goofs they usualy hide out in the gang office. The only way they could be plain clothes again after being dumped was to try and get on the 06 car. Enjoy 3rd watch you morons. Hey S.F. maybe there will be ome DOPW for you on afternoons, since thats all you and your troll bring in

sounds like someone in 014 who got dumped is sticking up for the ones who couldnt give him any arrests. They should have used all their so-called talent, arrests and time on the job, while they were on the team. Instead they are going where they belong, to the 3rd watch. The washed up sos and narcotics wonders...........

Sounds to me like one of the newbies or someone on their second try on the 014th dist so called burglary/drinker team is jealous Maybe if you left 014 and went to a s/side or w/side district instead of hiding in 014 you might actually get yourself some awards all i can say is i'd rather have veteran officers on tact than inexperienced officers with (2) years on the job riding on radio calls that are given to beat cars instead of trying to get arrests on their own (oh i forgot they don't know how to be the police) and 20 arrests in six periods

Notice more of the posts are about 'alot' of the FTO's, not all. I too have posted my thoughts on the program and it's downfalls. A.B./M.L. are only 2 of the host of moron FTO's in 025.

Some people have taken on the very difficult job of being an FTO for the reasons you cited. Most, you can agree with did not.

Those who attack you personally are just taking a chance to slap at you on a blog because they wouldn't have the balls to face to face.

Still wanna know how N.P. passed though, lol.

For the person or people who are on here to down people in their own district, grow some balls. If you dont have the guts to go face to face with someone then your statements dont mean shit here. I thought this site was supposed to be the people in blue backing each other up instead of downing each other when you know the shit is hitting the fan in this department. You have been dumped, mistreated, someone else took your spot, who cares. If we dont take care of each other no one will. If you have a problem with someone thats now in a position you once held, go to them. Dont be a coward on here and trash them. We can all talk shit to the jagoffs on the street but when it comes down to facing our own you guys puss out. Think before you speak. That asshole that took your spot, for whatever reason, may be the one to save your ass when you need it.

hey SURFER BOY 025, you keep on making the same grammar mistakes on your posts, maybe you should reconsider who really is the moron, you also attempt to sound educated in your posts, however, you continue to make yourself look more and more ignorant as the days pass, just a little bit of advice, go back to school, english grammar 101 ??? ring a bell??? you can probably get into a local community college with a couple of letters of recommendation, or maybe they might even consider on a 'waiver', since you constantly use apostrophes rather than quotes, good luck improving the way you express your nonsensical opinions, any individual with half a brain who reads your posts can easily come to the conclusion it's your gibberish being expressed, MORON!!! you talk about face to face, how about telling A.B./M.L. they are morons to their face rather than hiding behind your anonymous post, who really is the coward now??? you mention balls??? where are your balls???
